It’s making me nervous.. how everyday feels the same. Meet my phantoms.....– TSOAF
There’s a middle-aged guy in the office, sitting with his back to me in a gray hoodie. It’s the way his slightly baggy jeans sit on his white sneakers… it makes me miss my dad. Which says a lot for the power of forgiveness.. and time healing wounds. But still, I can’t forget. Sometimes burned bridges make for peaceful homelands.
Today: took my vitamins, used a body scrub of coffee grounds & baking soda, followed by seaweed soap & jojoba oil. Applied some apple cider vinegar & tea tree oil. Used homemade tooth powder and carrot facial lotion. Finished a scoop of veggie powder in a glass of carrot juice. Now, who you calling a hippie?
Been a good day (and week) off work & with my love. Now I’m chillin at home alone. Just finished a quick home decor project. Enjoying a cuppa chai tea, new music (matt pond), and an intense book (requiem)… with my cats all asleep around me. It is good.

I love listening to wacky funky music when driving in snow storms. It calms me, makes it a fun adventure!
My sister-in-law says she never knew people more “one with the earth” than my family. She’s right… We all get weird and wacky and depressed when we’re stuck indoors and can’t get enough sunlight. I literally ITCH to be outside sometimes. And my bare feet in the grass or in the lake or in the sand, it just feels right. Maybe its our native Ojibwa roots, I...

The air on east coast is sparked with anticipation. We humans love a disaster.

I asked you for a smile I could photograph. You said no. Take one of yourself, you said. Later you asked if a fake smile would do. A compromise. Sadly, no. I’d rather go without.

I took some herbs to help me sleep, thinking a well-rested version of me would conquer the world tomorrow. Instead I’m laying here thinking of the person I used to be and all the little failings along the way. This world is set for failure, whether you can see it or not. Ehhh who conquers the world on a Thursday anyway?
I want to eat a delicious orange & lay in a snow-covered street, listening to the silence
